Dilithium Frequency

Post by mbwilliams »

Can anyone give me any tips for increasing dillithium frequency? I realize I can add more minors with dillithium but I would prefer it in empyt systems.

Cheers

No, he refers to your other topic (i.e. "limited" means this cannot be done yet -knowledge is there, but still alot of work/research to do).

I searched in UE stbof.res and trek.exe to edit dilithium frequency, but found nothing...
where is the option to be found?

Thanks for the link.

The probability that a star system contains dilithium. Negative values are treated as zero, values larger than 1.0 are treated as 1.0 .
Home systems of major races and space-faring minor races will get dilithium anyway.
Okay, I found the position. there are these numbers:
00 00 00 00 9a 99 99 99 99 99 b9 3f 7b 14 ae 47
What do I have to change to make it half dilithium?
(default value: 0.1 should be 0.05)

default value: 0.1 in 0.05
so you want less dilithium?

default value: 0.1 = 1 in 10 systems should have dilithium.
new value 0.05 = 1 in 20 systems should have dilithium
new value 0.5 = 10 of 20 systems should have dilithium

any way use UE to calculate new value to enter. value use in this case is a double (8 bytes) so select that box

in top line "decimal" enter new value and select "convert" next to decimal line

in trek.exe the values you would replace;

9A 99 99 99 99 99 B9 3F change to your new value.

I have almost no experience with hex editing, but I finally got it and changed it. :grin:
thanks for your answer, thunderchero. :up:
btw: some links in your "Nuts and Bolts Guide" are broken.

yes. value 0.05 could make it a little bit more interesting.
